Easter at Chamberlain

How we did:

1 Reduce incoming waste

We asked vendors to sell food in compostable packaging only, and they all agreed to do this.

2 Choose the right bin

It was difficult to predict just how much waste, and what types, there would be – so the we ensured there was extra space, just in case.

3 Let people know

Volunteers monitored each waste stations. Vendors and event visitors were happy to do as required based on the information provided to them.

4 Capture feedback

In the first year the event recycled or composted about two thirds of the event waste. We will continue to adopt a zero waste approach for the event next year and aim for increased diversion.
